The Thing 2 and a series by John Carpenter?

John Carpenter recently hinted that there might be a direct sequel to his cult film, The Thing. Crazy.

His 1982 SF terror film The Thing is a cinematic nugget where, during a winter in the heart of Antarctica, a team of twelve men discovers a body buried under the snow for more than 100,000 years. Thawed, the creature returns to life, taking the form of whoever it wants. Suspicion sets in between the men of the team. Where is the creature hiding? Who does she live in? A real fight begins.

The Thing, one of the greatest horror movies of all time A matrix model of the genre, with its signature special effects and iconic actors, The Thing is still considered one of the greatest horror films of all time. A prequel was released in 2011, but didn't come close to the original.

Since then, nothing has happened, until John Carpenter himself came out of the woods last weekend, during a a question-and-answer session at Texas Frightmare, and raises the possibility of a direct sequel to his iconic film. To the question of a fan who asked who of Childs (Keith David) or MacReady (Kurt Russell) had been contaminated at the end of the film, the latter, who usually dodges this recurring question, answered with an enigmatic: “ There may be a The Thing 2.”

A series by John Carpenters?! The latter has not toured since The Ward in 2010 also revealed that he had just shot a series in Prague called John Carpenter's Suburban Screams. Since then, although nothing has been officially confirmed, fan speculation has been rife. One thing leads to another… Source:
